I can remember I had played a toy harmonica as a child. I'm sure that both my parents and myself just regarded it as a "fun" noise maker. Well I thought it was fun. My parents - maybe not so much.

I remember that some time later when I was about 13 and had one of my first paying jobs I saw a Hohner Marine Band harmonica on sale at a music store in the local mall. By this time I was more interested in music and had noticed harmonica sounds in some songs on the radio and in some of the vinyl records or CDs that I had come to the store to look at in the first place. I thought it would be fun to try to see if I could learn to play harmonica and make some of those sounds so I bought my first real harmonica.

One day at my high school after lunch I was with some friends and I took out my harmonica. One of my friends asked if he could try it. I handed it to him and he started to wail away on one of the songs that had got me interested in playing in the first place. Not only did it sound as good as the recording but to me it was better because it was right there in front of me live! That was it for me. I was hooked. Every time I heard a song with a harmonica part in it I would try to figure it out. I found harmonica music everywhere. There was rock harmonica, then blues harmonica, then country and folk music with old Bob Dylan Harmonica songs. All it had taken was to see my friend play one simple tune. I guess I thought; "If some other 13 year old like me could do it so could I - right?"
